My husband loves this soup. He's a very picky eater and doesn't like too many soups.

Mix first 5 ingredients. Form into small meatballs (approximately 40). In a large frying pan, cook in water on medium-high heat for 15 minutes or until done. Meanwhile, cook fiori pasta in boiling salted water for 4 minutes; drain. Cook broccoli in boiling water for 2-3 minutes; drain. In a large pot, heat chicken broth to boiling. Reduce heat to low.

  • Frozen meatballs, cook meatballs in broth, cook veggie in pasta water, and make sure you add cheese slowly or it will break down and separate.

  • I'm pretty sure the one i use is made by Frito Lay. It's called mild cheddar cheese dip.

  • Sounds great, but what is a brand name of mild cheese dip? I'm not sure what this is.

  • I made soup yesterday. I used frozen cocktail meatballs already cooked. What a time saver! Soup was delicious. I did cook broccoli in pasta water for the last few minutes of pasta's cookiing time. I see no reason for white American cheese to be in cubes. Slices worked quite well.

  • I think the recipe looks pretty good, and I can't wait to try it..I will probably use both suggestions. The only thing I would change would be to make the onion bigger-possibly thin slices halved..BF and I both love onion! Thanks for sharing! This will be great with the winter weather, and a nice green salad on the side.

  • Why not do that then? I like to share my recipes with everyone, so they can enjoy them & also make them their own way. I hope you like it!!

  • Why not cook the meatballs in the broth, thus giving the meatballs a better taste?

  • Why not cook the broccoli in the pasta water during the last five minutes of pasta cooking?
